For those who've read it, what are your opinions on this book? I've read both of the Nowhere books, The Long Emergncy, and World Made by Hand. I thoroughly enjoyed all of these, the Nowhere books especially so. I have not read any of his earlier fiction books.

You will enjoy it if you liked the other 4.
Maggie Darling also touches on issues like suburbia and social collapse.

I have only read WMBH and I really like it and plan to reread it.  I have order TLE.  I like Kunstler's style. 

I'd like to know what REALLY happened to Wayne Karp and Brother Minor.

Just got this out of the library today.  The chapter on Paris doubles as an excellent history lesson!
Will let you know what I think of the rest of it.

I've read Geography, Place and City in Mind.  I'm a huge history buff and loved the discussion.

Just started reading this a while back. I am reading the chapters out of order, taking them in order of interest, instead. I found the chapter on Las Vegas hysterical--especially JHK's re-telling of limping retirees, cups filled to the brim with slot machine winnings, arthritically wheeze their way across a football field of traffic at the city's busiest intersection, while cars that had been waiting perhaps 20 minutes to make a left turn in one of the three left hand turn "stacking" lanes leaned on their horns. He calls that scene a microcosm of all that's wrong with America. Sad, but painfully funny at the same time.

I am up to the sixth chapter - Rome.  I was getting a bit bogged down in the Las Vegas chapter until the part about water allocations.  Generally, I would have liked more information about local geology, geomorphology and building materials.  The amount of research behind the descriptions is really impressive.

This is a book that could use a new edition; if not with historic photos and sketches included, then with links to websites.  How about "The City In Mind With Google Earth In Mind"?  I intend to investigate some of the sites described via Google Earth and other information sources.  The book was very informative so thanks, Jim.

So did I, really, up until now. Building a huge city on top of a volcano sounds like a really, really bad idea.

When I first read the book about 5 years ago, I was pretty wishy-washy about it. I picked it up again on a whim about 4 months ago from my local library and really, really enjoyed it. I don't know why I didn't like it at first, but revisiting the book was great.

The chapters on the European cities were very interesting and informative, I thought.

The chapter on Las Vegas was great for its entertainment value -- especially the description of gamblers navigating the highway crosswalks between casinos Smiley

I like reading books but so far I haven't read this one, well I guess I'll just check it the next time I go to bookstore.

Positively scintillating review, Sammy.

Say, I would be closely interested in your view on civic privatism.

And how much is 1+10-5/9 - to the nearest 3 figures?
